Moritz Boehringer is back.
The former German Football League star has signed with the Bengals. According to NFL.com, Boehringer has been added to the Bengals roster as part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway program, which lets all four AFC North teams carry an extra player through the end of training camp.
A wide receiver, Boehringer wowed observers at Florida Atlantic’s pro day in 2016 when he ran a 4.43 40 and had a 39-inch vertical leap, elite WR numbers for a tight-end-sized (6-4, 228 pounds) player.
There’s definitely a high expectation at Ohio State with all the guys it’s been able to produce in the league, Ward said. It’s not just about getting to the NFL. It’s about what you do while you’re here.
Ward is the kind of pick around which Browns fans will rally. He’s from nearby Macedonia, Ohio. He’s a solid cornerback who should help an ailing secondary as a starter, a role for which Urban Meyer’s Buckeye staff has prepared him.
Starting with their Tim Couch selection at the top of the 1999 NFL Draft, the Browns have consistently whiffed on their QB decisions over the last two decades. They’ve either played rookies too early or waited too long. They’ve gone through veteran stopgap after veteran stopgap. In the best times, they’ve gotten lucky with Kelly Holcomb, their lone playoff starter, and Derek Anderson, their lone Pro Bowl starter.
Although Mayfield has a higher upside than that of the four first-rounders who came before him (Couch, Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden and Johnny Manziel), Jackson is right in not rushing the rookie into action. Taylor is not some recycled starting option; he’s a legitimate one who suddenly puts the Browns in Herman Edwards Womens Jersey the top half of the league when it comes to starting QBs.

Taylor turns 29 in August, and going into his fourth season as a starter, that puts him in his prime playing years. He was good enough to earn a Pro Bowl selection in his first season with Buffalo in 2015 and has put up comparable numbers since. He arrives in Cleveland fresh off his first playoff action as a starter.
Taylor’s experience with the Bills also helps him prepare for his situation with the Browns. The ridiculous benching of Taylor in favor of Nathan Peterman last season sets up the former to work against the threat of Mayfield.
